Food courses are many because food culture is so rich in Greece. Mediterranean Greek cuisine enriched with the premium olive oil produced in the country gives a perfect taste to the food. Meat, fish, vegetables and fruits are all included in meals and their combinations are endless.
If you are invited to a local’s house as a guest you’d better arrive hungry, because people love showing their hospitality by overfeeding their guests.
Eating is almost a ritual in Greece. People always hold discussions over lunch or dinner and they share their food with others. When you see Greeks eating outside you may notice the amount of dishes around the table and be surprised at how much they eat. At the end of the meal, the bill is shared and divided among those who took part in the meal. Usually the restaurant will offer a complimentary dessert.
Ordering at a restaurant in Greek is a unique experience that will quickly immerse you in the food culture of the country! You‘d better not just order like a Greek, but eat like a Greek too! Kali oreksi! Good appetite!
